CSIT114/814 Group Assessment Notes and Marking Document
Part A: User Evaluation Report
Your group is to write a professional report outlining the evaluation of the potential system users and stakeholders to your client the ‘NSW Government’. The overall aim is only to focus on the systems analysis stage of the project [you are not looking into design or development at this stage, or in this subject – consider that this is a process of identifying if the system is actually feasible and return the benefits that the government wants]. In the ‘overview of the task’ it states “the final outcome of your project is to write an effective systems analysis showing how the system would function and how the client can benefit from your proposed solution”.
A professional report typically has the following structure:
? Letter of transmittal
? Frontispiece (contains the title, names of the producer[s] and recipient[s], source and date)
? Executive Summary
? Table of Contents
? Introduction
? {Body Text} this is split up under different headings depending on the nature and content of the report
? Conclusion
? References
? Glossary
? Appendices
So for your report in the {body text} section, I would be expected that you have headings like: Stakeholder Analysis (could include personas of users); Interview Questions [for each stakeholder groups]; WBS, System Vision Documents, Gantt Charts (remember that you are only focusing on the analysis phase of a project lifecycle).
Note: It is expected that the report is created in a professional manner using the inbuilt features in word processors (e.g. MS Word) for creating headings, figures and captions, sections etc.
